Brief Description: Globalization and the Human Condition offers an introduction to the many social, cultural, political, and economic linkages among Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe. We will focus on several contemporary issues shaping and being shaped by globalization including food security, migrant labor, war, poverty, media representations, and how business interests, social problems, and cultural formations are linked. Throughout this semester we will pay special attention to the global flows of people and resources and how globalization influences the everyday lives of people around the world. This course is also concerned with the historical roots and developments of globalization.
